The TUI Clean & Green programme is a TUI Care Foundation initiative targeting waste in coastal areas through technical advice, training, capacity-building and awareness-raising to help change behaviours. A new programme is being initiated on Cyprus, TUI Care Foundation is partnering with The Travel Foundation to help hotels, bars and restaurants reduce single-use plastics by 70 % in Ayia Napa. In Curaçao, over 2,000 schoolchildren and teachers will be educated about plastic waste.
Practice what we preach
Across our activities we are replacing single-use plastics where possible. For example, at the 2018 TUI Destination Experiences Leadership Conference, over 550 colleagues were gifted with a TUI-branded reusable stainless steel bottles to use at five refill stations, avoiding over 5,000 plastic bottles. Across our Destination Experiences division we rolled out a campaign to engage colleagues in offices around the world to reduce plastics. Key measures include: installation of osmosis water filters; provision of reusable water bottles; use of bamboo cups; awareness-raising sessions, additional recycling bins at onsite cafés, options for reusable take-away cups and containers; and preference for catering companies that do not use single-use plastic.
